Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Post what hardware you run your flavor of *BSD on!
I used to run a gateway/firewall with freeBSD up until about a year ago when I purchased a hardware appliance to handle that. I now have a freeBSD machine running on vmware as a mail server (6.2). I also had a triple booted laptop that had freeBSD 5 until recently.
Distribution: Solaris 9 & 10, Mac OS X, Ubuntu Server
I clicked in figuring I would vote for OpenBSD, but then Mac OS X was on the list. What could I do?
I use OpenBSD for firewalls, bridges and routers on our network.
I have been a Mac user since 1985, and my home computers and desktop are all Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. I manage all our servers, network equipment, etc. from my Mac. Our main servers are Solaris 9. We also have some massively parallel SGI compute servers that are running Suse.
